MALAREK: How much money are we talking here?
BOWLING: Well, I’m not sure exactly – they keep that confidential – but I believe it’s around $9,000 or $10,000 a year.
MALAREK: Milt wanted to know if the darn things were safe or not, and to his surprise, he couldn’t get a straight answer from anyone.
BOWLING: My concern I guess is worst-case. If the best scientists in the world can’t agree that it’s safe, who is anybody else to say that it is?
MALAREK: So Milt mobilized the neighborhood and eventually got the school board on side. There would be no antenna on this school.

MAPLE RIDGE – The B.C. Cancer Agency will study a cluster of cancer diagnoses — 10 teachers over several years — at Riverside elementary in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district.
“We think that’s a fairly high number compared to the general population,” said district teachers’ union president Drusilla Wilson.
The school board’s occupational health and safety officer, Judy Dueck, said a “whole bunch of variables” need to be looked at to determine whether this is a cancer cluster or just a coincidence.
“We’re prepared to carry through because the anxiety levels are high,” Dueck said.
The study will be led by the B.C. Cancer Agency, and Dueck is starting to collect data for it, starting with a staff survey at Riverside.
The latest cancer victim from Riverside died on Jan. 2 of brain cancer. However, all her colleagues who have been diagnosed have recovered. The cancer types have ranged from breast cancer, throat and larynx cancer, to leukemia, according to Wilson.
